As summer rears its head, there’s one timeless piece in my wardrobe—my chambray top, which I tend to throw on for a weekend of bar hopping, brunching, or even running around town for errands.
A chambray blouse is comfortable, stylish, and all-American, meaning it’s the versatile staple piece of the summer. Indeed, what I especially love about this piece is the variety of ways it can be worn—from a more relaxed jean, white undershirt, and Converse look for a day in Central Park, to a stylish and sophisticated look for some fun with the Bitches in Williamsburg.
I chose the latter for this particular Sunday, as I met up with Ally, Emily, and Becca for some afternoon fashion fun in the neighborhood, followed by an amazing burger dinner at Umami.
It seems my chambray craze will carry over into summer, for sure. I thought a bright beaded necklace and neon belt with a nude crossbody and peep toe lace up heels would be the perfect accessories to spruce up this look into season.
Another favorite piece of mine is my white flair skirt. I’m a huge admirer of the fit-and-flare silhouette because it creates a sultry yet slimming look. A lighter colored pant or skirt always seems to make the Chambray blouse pop a little more for me.
It’s also the perfect, transformable look for those Saturday afternoon shenanigans that turn into date nights, without having to rush home and change your ‘fit.
Whether you’re going for a casual, relaxed look for weekend errands and lunch, or something a little more refined for girls night out or date with the beau, the chambray blouse is your go-to. Shop our top picks to get in on the chambray craze this season.
